Gentoo "Over the past few days, I discovered that the Gentoo Foundation's charter is in the process of being revoked by the state of New Mexico, apparently due to regular paperwork not being filed by the trustees. What this means is that the Gentoo Foundation is currently hanging for its life by a string, and at any day could cease to exist as an entity. That is the very bad news. The good news is that I was able to talk to Grant Goodyear (trustee) this morning on the phone, and I have confirmed that Grant had received my email about the revocation issue that I sent 2 days ago and that he will be resolving this critical issue in the next couple of days by filing the appropriate paperwork with the state of New Mexico, and this paperwork will also remove me as President of the Foundation."

And b00gie what does the bug list say


" ------- Comment #7 From Rémi Cardona 2007-06-09 16:32:19 0000 [reply] -------

Listen Bugs,

First of all, insulting people won't get you very far. I already believe I'm
wasting my time answering, but here's to hoping you may actually listen.

The problem isn't the ebuild, the proof being you made one yourself in 5
minutes. The problem is the XINE BUGS THAT WE CAN'T FIX. There, I said it.

For months/years, there has always been hard and tedious work trying to fix
xine bugs in Totem with the xine team in Gentoo, with the Totem upstream and
with the xine upstream.

Bugs kept piling and there's nothing we could do about it. Our solution,
_drop_xine_support_.

If you want it, fine. Do it in an overlay, that's what overlays are for. If you
want upstream to care about it, provide patches.

But stop whining here, our reasons are well known and well explained. Thanks
for understanding."

The Bug is with Xine, when the upstream fixes their Bug Xine will be put back into totem.

Come on .......

well that doesn't fit well for devs who contribute like all the others like you said, does it? :p
please see the big picture. They are unstaffed (that is a fact) and management do nothing about it.
Other projects have leaders and foundations (openbsd anyone? they just created their own) and we denied both.
If you want to say that everything is good with the project, go for it, but it will keep smelling inside.
You want to help gentoo stay alive and kick ass like the old days?
Be more demanding...

Excuse me? Be more demanding?

How about buckle down and become a dev instead of bitching on an unrelated forum?
